The problem could be with the power cord, or the plug thats the
power cord plugges into or the motherboard, so the wiring
it would be a good idea to have the machine checked

Has the fuse blown on my machine? It doesn't turn on anymore. I changed the bulb and accidentally put in a 25W instead of a max 15W and it turned on for a few mins until i started sewing and it cut.

Hello Jess

Your manual is listed below, but I don't see a fuse or a reset button at a quick glance.

However, open up the area where the bulb is and look for a reset button. Also look on the foot pedal. Plug something else into the wall outlet to verify that a breaker hasn't tripped.

Did the machine work with no bulb alight? Wondering if the bulb must be working and present for the machine to function for safety reasons?

You know there is an On/Off switch above the power cord on the back of the machine, PAGE 6, Figure 1 in the manual?

Sewwing mashine sudenlly just turned off

if you have tried unplugging and letting it set for a few mins and plugging it back in... and still have no joy... it is likely that a short or something blew a fuse. I would take the machine in and have them do a check, clean and adjust while they did the repair.

My machine keeps freezing on me. It will work if I leave it off for about 10 min. but only for a few min. and then stops working again. I have to turn it off for 10 min. again before it works...

If the handwheel is tight and difficult to turn, then there is a bind somewhere. Could be debris in the hook raceway, thread caught in the take-up crank or a shaft bushing failure. Consult your instruction book for directions on how to clean out the hook area. If cleaning the hook area doesn't help, take it to your repair person. The more you use it in this condition, the worse it could become.
